Process Monitoring


The Process Monitoring Settings is a pre-loaded repository of all the generic processes present in a monitor(In this case the monitor will be a server, whether virtual or non-virtual).

In order to monitor a process that may or may not be available in this list, you can use Rediscovery. The metrics related to that process are then available for monitoring.

This list of processes along with the list of services enables Motadata AIOps to discover the applications present in monitors at the time of rediscovery.

Go to Menu, Select Settings . After that, Go to Monitoring . Select Process Monitor Settings to display the list of all the processes that are available in the system.
